Blogging 101

This weekend my friend Terri (The Conveyor Belt) and I were asked to speak on the topic of blogging, at the University of British Columbia! It was actually pretty fun to share the little bit I’ve learned so far, running this site. The best part is we were paid in my second favourite currency: Beer (second only to diamonds).

After I spoke, someone stood up and said “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.” I thought that was a little rude, maybe that’s just me.

Emile Hyperion Dubuisson

A moody series of photographs by Emile Hyperion Dubuisson. Night Lighting. I like to keep track of interesting names and I have to say that’s the coolest name I’ve posted since James Gulliver Hancock. Actually, it’s been a really good week for names, I just really like three-name names.

Andy Chung

Allow me to introduce some local talent, Vancouver-based Andy Chung! Andy submitted a skateboard design to Project #4 which led me to his website and the rest, as they say, is history (and by history I mean I snooped around his website, grabbed a few images and wrote this little blurb – I thought it sounded cooler the other way). Andy is currently in his fourth year at Emily Carr, the same art school (now University) I graduated from.

Today’s my birthday!

Hooray for October 3rd! Last year I went all out and had a Sushi, Sunglasses & Sake birthday at a big Japanese restaurant with about 20 friends. This year it’s Mexican – I’ll let you know how it goes. (I’m celebrating tonight so if the site hasn’t been updated on Monday assume it went well.)

I am taking the rest of the day off and dedicating this PBF comic to myself:

Have a great weekend everyone!

Dinosaur Comics

As you know (or maybe you don’t – actually, you not knowing is most likely the case) I am always looking for funny comics online. My friend Rob just sent over this one from Dinosaur Comics and I laughed pretty hard.

See a much larger version of this comic here. If that doesn’t make you laugh, hit “more” I guarantee you will laugh.
